US film director Mark Jacobs in SD

He is in the country courtesy of a non-governmental organization ‘Beyond the Game’ based in the US.
The NGO is helping the underprivileged families and building care points for children.
He said in his 32 years of experience, he has met different people with different talent in different countries.
“I’ve worked with these big names in the entertainment industry. What I have discovered is that they aren’t touched about what goes on around them.
They turn a blind eye to the suffering out there. They are only concerned about materialistic things. They are not in tune with human suffering,” he said.
Jacobs was in the country last year, accompanied by his wife.
He has been impressed by the beauty of the country and  its tranquility.
He added that despite its positive attributes, he is astounded that the country is still portrayed in a negative manner internationally.
Jacobs seeks to change the global perception of the country by shooting short films for Beyond the Game as well as a full documentary of the country.
He foresees it will take a year before the documentary is released.
 “The documentary is meant to portray Swaziland in a positive light. It will be shown to the relevant people in the US so that they can assist the underprivileged in the country. Americans always like to help, as they like to get involved in any project which will improve a country’s image as well as its people,” he added.
He assured the nation that they are not here for malicious reasons.
Jacobs said people can check for some of his film clips on the Beyond the Game website,
